all pics are after the dance (none of the pics came out good durning the dance)
Probably the best known of the many Blinese dances, the Kecak is unusual in tht it does not have a gamelan accompaniment.  Instead the background is provided by a chanting 'choir' of men who provide the 'chak-a-chak-a-chak' noise.  Originally, this chanting group was known as the Kecak and was part of a Sanghyang trance dance.  Then, in the 1930s, the modern Kecak developed in Bona near Gianyar in East Bali, where the dance is still held regularly.
  The Kecak tells a tale from the Ramayana, one of the great Hindu holy books, about Prince Rama and his Princess Sita.  With Rama's brother, Laksamana, they have been exiled from the kingdom of Ayodya and are wandering in the forest.  The evil Rawana, King of Lanka, lures Rama away with a golden deer (which is really Lanka's equally evil prime minister, who has magically changed himself into a deer).  When Rama fails to return, Sita persuades Laksamana to search for him.  When the princess is alone, Rawana pounces and carries her off to his hideaway.

When Rama fails to return, Sita persuades Laksamana to search for him. When the princess is alone, Rawana pounces and carries her off to his hideaway.

  Hanuman, the white monkey-god, appears before Sita and tells her that Rama is trying to rescue her.  He brings her Rama's ring to show that he is indeed the prince's envoy and Sita gives him a hairpin to take back to Rama.  When Rama finally arrives in Lanka he is met by the evil king's evil son, Megananda, who shoots an arrow at him, but the arrow magically turns into a snake, which ties Rama up.  Fortunately, Rama is able to call upon a Garuda, a mythical creature, part-man and part-bird, for assistance and thus escapes.  Finally, Sugiwa, the king of the monkeys, comes to Rama's assistance with his monkey army and, after a great battle, good wins out over bad and Rama and Sita return home.
  Throughout the dance the surrounding circle of men, all bare-chested and wearing checked cloth around their waists, provide a nonstop accompaniment that rises to a crescendo as they play the monkey army and fight it out with Rawana and his cronies.  The chanting is superbly synchronised; members of the 'monkey army' sway back and forth, raise their hands in unison, flutter their fingers and lean left and right, all with an errily exciting coordination.

GUNGUNG AGUNG, Bali's highest and most revered mountain, Gunung Agung is an imposing peak from most of south and east Bali, although it's often obscured by cloud and mist. Most books and maps give its height as 3142m, but some say it lost its top in the 1963 eruption and with subsequent erosion, and is now only 3014m.  The summit is an oval crater, about 700m across, with its highest point on the western edge above Besakih.

after eating at the Dirty Duck, I went to an ATM machine (my first time in Bali)
thought I was getting out 2 million Rp to do me but it was only 200,000 and each time I use this silly card, it charges me 2US$$, so I tried it again and messed up again and only got 600,000 this time, so I thought, that will do me awhile and I will try again at a later date, when I think I will pay more attention to what I'm doing
